What non-teaching jobs are available for a potentially laid off teacher?

My government has made severe cuts in education, due to that and the fact I'm only in my 2nd year of teaching the probability that I would be laid off is very high. I have a sociology degree and an education degree, but I'm struggling any job that asks for either.

Google failed me, when I search 'what can you do with an education degree?' the jobs listed always require a lot of experience. Since I'm a fairly new teacher my experience is not really there yet and it's difficult to find job postings related to my skills. I'm very disheartened since i love my job, and it's devastating putting all that work into school knowing I can't even use my skills. I just need help thinking outside the box, I need to pay the darn bills and any suggestions would be much appreciated!
(Note: I'm not in a position to teach overseas at the moment)
